Bigger and Better: Ballan Recreation Reserve opens!

The $4 million redevelopment of the Ballan Recreation Reserve is complete and was officially opened in October 2023.

From a new space to cheer on the Ballan Blues to new facilities for our local tennis club and karate students, our upgraded recreation reserve will bring benefits to our community for generations.

The new sports pavilion includes a large function room, kitchen and bar, office space, meeting rooms and storage sheds for the sporting clubs.  

New change rooms include four female friendly change rooms, umpire change rooms, and a tiered concourse will provide the best view of the oval.

The location of the pavilion allows for an extension of the oval to meet senior AFL football standards.


$7 million Ballan Library and Community Hub will be constructed in the heart of Ballan.

It will include library services, Maternal and Child Health services, an art exhibition space, visitor information centre and community meeting rooms.

The new library has been made possible thanks to a $5 million grant from the Andrews Labor Government and Moorabool Shire Council making a contribution $2 million. The community hub and library is expected to open in 2023 on the site of the old Commonwealth Bank in Inglis Street.


Ballan is a growing community and we are planning for the communities amenities to grow with it.
